Up in the seating area was a pain. No matter where you sit you have this thick metal edge rail within the eyeline. It is not my venue of choice and could really do with a revamp. We saw a sellout with Christine and the...More

We queued around the block to get in as our seats were not allocated - I would probably have preferred they were but we did ok nevertheless. Once in it was easy to get around so a good venue overall.

Really really love this venue. Couldn't be happier with the lay out. Can't wait to visit again. It's always the first venue I check when there is a tour I was to see.

Watched Leftfield here - my first visit. We were up in the Circle with an odd rule that the first three rows couldn't stand. Great venue other than that.

It's well-lit at night and lots of people on the street. Don't worry at all :)
